What Leaders Do

Leaders seek to be effective by empowering order and organization in three distinct yet interacting human interaction domains.

First, leaders build communities of shared identities and by doing so engender a sense of belonging and cooperation among the members of their community.

Second, leaders administer to the needs and organizing imperatives of the organization and its members. This includes promoting order and the effective execution of organized cooperative activities through operational clarity in roles, responsibilities and accountabilities.

Third, leaders set direction for the teams and groups within their accountability. They do this by exploring the changing environment and generating options intended to further advance group and organizational goals, objectives and ultimately success as the organization defines it.

All of these involve creating the clarity in direction, accountability, instrumentality, and social identity that is required to enable the organization to meet the moment and move it forward along the road to success.
